Wild Asian elephant Elephas maximus population in Salakpra Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand (Mahidol, Rattanawat Chaiyarat, Namphung Youngpoy, Prawut Prempree, 2012) "The Asian elephant population in the Salakpra Wildlife Sanctuary has increased from 20 and 35 individuals in 1987 and 1990, respectively (Dobias 1987, Santiapillai & Jackson 1990) to 180 individuals in 2012 when this study was carried out. These findings are supported by Siripunkaw & Kongrit (2005), who estimated a similar population size for our study area using a DNA analysis."

Livelihoods Transition, Community Development, local knowledge

Livelihood Transition and Adaptive Bamboo Forest Management: A Case Study in Salakpra Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand (Nittaya Mianmit, Rachanee Pothitan and Shinya Takeda, 2018). "Adaptive bamboo forest management in SPWS based on traditional knowledge and developed by rural communities over the centuries [13] is an innovative forest management practice. The villagers expect that if the regulations return to traditional village practices, the bamboo forest will, in the future, help to sustain the production of multiple goods and services, particularly bamboo culms. The bamboo forest will then generate income for them again and enhance their livelihood security and quality of life."
